Thawfest 2018 (Hosted By Painted Peak Brewing Co)

On Main Street in Tazewell Virginia, Painted Peak Brewing Company hosted their first “Thawfest” Saturday, April 21st. This festival was a great opportunity to celebrate winter ending with some great beer, food, and music.

A few members of Blue Ridge Report including myself, attended the first annual “Thawfest” which is a music/beer festival that is located in Tazewell Virginia, right in front of Painted Peak Brewing Co. Thanks to the kindness of Painted Peak’s Owner/CEO Dave Blankenship we were able to capture our interviews with some of the bands inside of the “Tap House” where the incredible tasting Painted Peak beer is crafted.

Below you can find our Video Interviews with two of the bands that played at this years Thawfest “Black Garlic” and “The Kind Thieves”. Continue reading “Thawfest 2018 (Hosted By Painted Peak Brewing Co)”

Welcome to yet another week of Tunes Tuesday, a weekly post of my favorite songs at the moment as I update and delete my playlists. The goal of Tunes Tuesday is to bring a range of music to an even bigger range of people and for everyone to find something new that tickles their fancy. We here at Blue Ridge Report are always looking for new music and would love your suggestions, so don’t be shy in the comments.

 

1. Antique Gucci – Cryptex

A new combination of electronic sounds and rap style lyrics, Cryptex is definitely not something we have heard before. I first heard this song while trolling YouTube at the wee hours of the morning and seeing a phenomenon known as the “Karma Is A Bitch” Challenge.
